Digging in the Garden: Archaeological Discoveries in the Studley Royal Water Gardens

County: North Yorkshire

Fri 22 July 14.30-16.30

Meet National Trust Archaeologist, Mark Newman, on a new tour of various excavations he has directed within Studley Royal Gardens in the past 20 years. This work has radically changed our understanding of this glorious Georgian masterpiece, rightly called the “Wonder of the North”.

Also visit the “Quebec” a major lost garden feature, due to be revealed through archaeological excavation in the coming months. There you can meet archaeological surveyors, and even try your hand at turning historical maps into reality on the ground….
